What a treat,
This review is from: Tales of Us (Audio CD)
I, somehow, had succeeded to not listen Goldfrapp, although I knew they existed. I never heard their songs or never paid any attention. So they escaped me.
And then came this album and the black&white brilliance of a music video of Drew. The song haunted me and I have bought the album.
Goldfrapp's "Tales Of Us" is the finest musical treat of 2013. Elegant, melancholic, beautifully edited songs. Her song writing is one of a kind. And most importantly, Alison performs them in such a way that you can hear she actually means and feels every word. As I like melancholy in art more than "happy" pieces, having only one up-tempo song in the entire album suits me as well.
It has became one of my favourite albums. I have ordered another of their albums now. And I have gained yet another artist to follow for the lifetime.
